in that state. governor chris christie said the damage is, quote, unthinkable and some of the worst that he's ever seen. now, the jersey shore was particularly hard hit. homes flooded and destroyed, boardwalks in several beach towns were swept into the ocean. tonight the full extent of the damage there is still not known. in new york city, a 14-foot surge of sea water swelled into the streets of new york city. authorities say that at least 18 people have been killed. all three major airports in new york are still closed. the subway system is completely shut down. the mayor of new york, bloomberg, said it may take days before it's going to be up and running again. now, fox newschannel's own jamie colby is standing outside the brooklyn battery tunnel in manhattan where the governor toured the damage not too long ago. jamie, you've been there all day. what's the situation now at this hour? >> reporter: you know, sean, good evening to you. i had a chance to survey the damage with governor cuomo, and it is pretty incredible to see it up close and personal, but before we talk about the businesses
